Not sure if tonedeaf101 used m950 or m960 as it changes in the build spec:

Can't be sure from those pics but the mech looks too close to the BB to my eye. If it is, then moving it unwound make the cable route less.acute.

The height is OK, its a low sitting mech thats why it looks a bit low. The angle just seems so wrong for it to be the right mech for the frame.

I guess there is either a 2nd type of bottom pull mech or the zaskar LE not not use the m950!

Thanks gtRTSdh, klaw71 has already pointed me to the thread.

My problem is that to the best of my knowledge it is the right mech for the frame/period.

I assume they left the shops rubbing the frame as in our pictures, I don't understand why the tubes need to meet in the centre of the BB in the way that they do.

Thinking back, I have only ever used two types of mech on my Zaskar in 20 years. An M732 XT and a Proshift. The Proshift was dual pull and from about 1997 and the cable routing was fine.

Perhaps the correct mech was used the whole time.
